Pinto Coffee & Purple Cane @ Janda Baik

Hardly an hour's drive from KL, Pinto Coffee provides an easy escape from the city, serving Mie Aceh with crab (RM15.50), Nasi Goreng Telur (RM10) & everything from buttermilk pancakes to buffalo wings to baked lasagne, plus Cendol Soya Cincau (RM6.50) & avocado ice-blended coffee (RM12), in a calm, back-to-the-kampung space where nature's sounds fill the air. The food & drinks taste wholesome, helping to make Pinto a pleasant place for lingering. Bring a book or browse the outlet's selection, & note that reaching Pinto requires driving up a pebbly slope, parking by the jungle & strolling uphill for a minute.

 Also in this area, Purple Cane is equally worth a visit, with verdant, wide-open surroundings to complement a selection of lei cha, black tea curry chicken & oolong tea boiled vegetables. We enjoyed sitting in this wood-dominated restaurant & leisurely having Kindori vanilla ice cream cake (RM9.90) with lemon celery green tea (RM9.90) & carrot-orange-apple juice (RM12.90).

  1. Never thought that Purple Cane would open N outlet in Janda Baik. Perhaps this would appeal to KL-ites who want to escape from the hustle and bustle of KL life but for me... I'm a kampung boy so most likely I will come here when I am out of idea on where to go with the kids

    1. Leo: yeah, this is one of the more unusual branches for Purple Cane - but it's really nice! i love the outdoorsy feel and the sense of spaciousness that we don't really get in the city, heh. too bad the kitchen was closed when we were there, so we didn't manage to have Purple Cane's food :)

  4. Love this place, the use of the tree trunks and all that wood, the surroundings, everything! I would enjoy the food too, I'm sure...even though the egg was over-fried, not the way I would want it, oil too hot.

    1. Suituapui: yeah, i'd have preferred a runnier egg too, but i suspect that's now how they make it here. but yeah, the ambiance totally compensated for it! :)

  6. I love how the interiors look, again, my eyes are set on the interiors. I think the place would really complement to a coffee + cold/bed weather. So Philippine like.
